Training

One of the best things about joining a club as large as Croydon is the diversity of activities that are on offer!

STARTING OUT:  We have a range of starting points, each tailored specifically to suit the age of your dog, whether a baby puppy or an older dog looking to learn some new behaviour.  In each you will improve the bond between yourself and your dog, while teaching your pet a vast array of reliable, impressive skills.  (For more detailed class information, please click on “Obedience” on the main menu.)

If you and your dog have already had some training, you can book in for an Individual Evaluation, where your skills are assessed so we can allocate you to the most appropriate class for you.

Once you obtain your Basic Obedience Certificate, you have more than just a lovely, well-behaved pet; it is your passport to the world of dog activities!

BEYOND BASIC:  As you progress through the obedience classes, you will have opportunities to learn more about the large range of activities on offer for dogs;

  • Intermediate Obedience
  • Advanced Obedience
  • Agility
  • Flyball
  • Trialling
  • Rally-O

And for those looking for an even bigger challenge, classes in each field can lead to competition.  One thing is for sure: you will never be at a loss for something new to learn at Croydon!

All you need to begin these activities is your Basic Obedience Certificate, although further obedience training (at least Social) is strongly recommended to ensure you get the most out of the activities you choose to pursue.
